Becoming a Certified Nurse Aide in Georgia
In order to receive certification as a nurse aide in Georgia you must complete a certification course that has been approved by the state. These programs are most often offered at nursing homes, home care agencies, high schools, technical colleges, and private schools. A complete listing of approved programs is available from the Georgia Health Partnership.
Once you have completed the necessary classes and become certified your name will be put on the Georgia Certified Nurse Registry for two years. After that time you must renew your certification. In order to receive a renewal you must have worked as a certified nurse aide for pay for at least eight hours in the last two years. This process must be done every two years.
If you have not worked for pay for at least eight hours you will have to retake the Written/Oral and Skills Certification Examinations at a testing center. If you pass the tests your name will placed on the registry for another two years.
If you are currently registered in another state and are in good standing then you can fill out a reciprocity application from the Georgia Health Partnership website and transfer your certification.
